New figures from the FBI show the city of Belvedere in Marin County is the safest city in the state, with a violent crime rate of zero.

The Marin Independent Journal reports Belvedere was the only city with a population of more than 2,000 people to report no violent crimes last year. It was Belvedere's third straight year with a clean slate.

The last time that Belvedere logged a violent crime was an assault in 2007.
